On the windowsill,
wilted sunflower petals scatter,
dust gathers,
I trace the screen's cross-hatching patterns,
as days limp by.

Fading pictures on walls of
unfamiliar faces
long gone places.
“Too busy, but will visit someday,”

oh I love it :) to me, it just reads well, a pattern of moderately connected thoughts. nothing intense, I've been reading too much intense stuff lately from other deviants X) this is a nice break. the other poster's words about deep and emotional strike me as intriguing because I don't draw that from here.
